Who is Sensational Beauty?

Marcia Lai

Marcia Lia is the owner operator of Sensational Beauty. Marcia has a background in Medicine and decided in 1994 that her passion was health, wellbeing and looking great. So she wondered how she could use her degree as a medical doctor to benefit others. The answer was to become a Beauty Therapist. So after exhausting research she found a very reputable and highly regarded College right here in Collins Street Melbourne > The Elly Lukas Beauty Therapy Training College. She immediately enrolled and completed her training in 1996. At the Celebration event at the conclusion of the course she was presented with 3 Awards.

The Excellence on Biology Award.

Associate Diploma of Health and Science.

The prestigious overall best student of the year the Dux Award.

Experience and Skills

After qualifying, Marcia went on to work in numerous Salons in the inner suburbs of Melbourne and ended up working and managing a Beauty Salon in Greensborough, the famous Tom Lane Pharmacy. Later in the year of 1999 she then decided to open her own business, hence the conception of Sensational Beauty. Since then her skills have escalated and she is determined to reach excellence in all areas of the beauty industry, by developing precise, consistent and time efficient practices.


Her Beauty Salon located at 760 High Street Thornbury was opened late 2008 and has since been operating at this location to the present day.


Equipment and technology

Tools are a vital part of a business as well as understanding current client needs and comfort. The tools, equipment and training are top grade to insure that you the client recieves the most time efficient, comfortable and very satisfying results. Because each individual has a unique skin colour, hair care and different sensitivities depending on the area/s to be treated, the equipment and tools coupled with a skilled Therapist is vital.
Sensational beauty go to exhausting lengths to research and evolve with technological changes. For example not to many years ago, if a person wanted permanent hair removal, specialised skin treatments or had a darker complexion many treatments were unsuitable due to the risks of burns and injury. Thankfully the technology has improved, and so has the results.Now not only are the treatments better but the actual treatments are more comfortable. At Sensational beauty  Therapist/s will consult with you on a personal level and advise  you on the machine and technology should be implemented for your own personal beauty goals.  

All the settings Sensational machines can be adjusted to maximise comfort and effective treatments.
As well as the intensity of machine being adjustable, all machines can be tailed to a particular skin, hair type and treatment target area.
